Get your houses ready for the most intense contest yet this year! Over the next several weeks, you will have the fun opportunity to show off your hunting heroism, crafting coordination, and trophy triumphs in this new three part contest kicking off today. PART 1: Hunt down a creature, kill another player (to get their skull), or catch a fish! PART 2: Craft the trophy from that creature (human skulls come as-is, no preparation needed...) PART 3: Display your trophy triumphs in a single room of a house you have access too! As we receive contest submissions, they will be announced in the forums and on social with eventually a gallery of all submissions put together. SUBMISSIONS MUST INCLUDE 2-5 screenshots of combating a creature that can provide a trophy (1x with UI, 1x without UI) 2-3 screenshots of you in the crafting process for creating the trophies (2x with UI) 2-4 screenshots of your trophy room (1x with UI, 1x+ without UI, try different angles, lighting, etc.) Brief one paragraph description for each screenshot. Please include where you killed creatures, how and even where you crafted the trophies, how many and what types of trophies you’ve collected, where your house is located at for visitor viewing (incl. Scene name and location coordinates), etc. Submit all screenshots in a single post response HERE. Deadline to submit is Monday, May 29 at 11:59pm CT. We will only accept one submission per individual or group, though you can submit your own entry separate from a group, if it’s completely separate in content. No reuse of submission materials! SOME EXAMPLE TROPHIES New in R41: Phoenix, Dragon, and Troll Mounted Desert Wolf Mounted Obsidian Wolf Mounted Timber Wolf Mounted Patriarch Bear Mounted Large Crocodile … including several others … and player skulls! SCREENSHOT GUIDELINES Resolution: Minimum of 1920×1080, and always in 16:9 aspect ratio (you can trim). Quality: Use in-game settings to their maximum, no post-screenshot alterations allowed. Set the stage: Other players and staged items in the shots are great resources. Capture the action: Since only 4x combat screens are allowed, choose what you feel are the most prominent creatures you intend to have trophies for. Stand your ground: Either your own house or permission to set up a trophy room in someone else's home is acceptable. This must be recognized in your submission. Protip: Be mindful of the game time for the best lighting angles you want, if any. Remember! UI off toggle is (Key: F9), no post-alterations to the screenshots please. WINNERS & PRIZES Prizes will be awarded on a tier basis: 1st Place: 100 in-game COTOs and three developer skulls of your choice 2nd Place: 50 COTOs and two developer skulls of your choice Two Runner-ups: 25 COTOs and one developer skull of your choice. All valid entries will receive a custom title in-game (exact title yet to be decided… community suggestions are welcome! Should refer to the contest in some way, and not be a title that we would use for other hunting/trophy purposes.) Winners will be announced at the start of the Summer Telethon on May 31 around 12:30pm CT. If you have questions about this contest, or wish to comment on a particular submission, please post in the official contest forum thread. Good luck crafters, hunters, and decorators!
